Jurgen Klopp has moved to alleviate fears over Liverpool’s recent form.
The Reds sit eighth in the Premier League table after five games, and were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Leicester in midweek.
They face the Foxes again on Saturday in our game to watch, and Klopp is hoping to overturn a run of four games without a win.
The German was in a belligerent mood when facing the press on Thursday.
“You really think there would be one per cent of a reason that I would panic?” he asked.
“It’s football. We have eight points. In four games we were the clear better side but we didn’t get the results.
“Now we could panic because of not getting the results or we say ‘It’s still not good enough playing football.’
“Do you think any team in the world loves playing against us in this moment?
“Or hope like Burnley that they only have to go for set-pieces and you get whatever you want and you can concede 35 shots on target or whatever and it’s clear you will be lucky? It’s not like this.
“It’s always the same, ‘playing good football you have no results’, ‘the same defending problems like 500 years ago’. You can talk about this but I cannot think like this.
“I’m not in panic. I don’t think that is the main message at the moment, not to get in panic because I cannot imagine that anybody thinks about this.”
